General

  • Small and peaceful park a few steps from the beach
  • Spectacular sea views over to Jura and Islay
  • Wildlife and birdwatching haven

It's only a few steps from your accommodation to the beaut beach of Muasdale Holiday Park on the west coast of Kintyre: we reckon your dog will be delighted.

As will scenery seekers: 'perfect', 'stunning' and 'beautiful' are just a couple of the plaudits piled on the spectacular sea scenery from this park, along with an observation from one chuffed former guests pointing out who would need a telly when pitching up here…?

Muasdale is a small, peaceful and family-run park midway between Tarbert and Campbelltown, and in a coastal locale of splendid scenery, set right on the beach with striking vistas over to the islands of Islay, Jura and Gigha. The ferries are a short drive from the site for spending days island hopping; you can even get over to Ballycastle and Northern Ireland for the day via the Isle of Islay.

As you might reckon, this is wildlife and birdwatching heaven, with seals, otters and springtime nesting birds on the beach, more seals in the surrounding waters, and many a seabird overhead. It's firm fishing land too: if you don't have your kit with you, wander the beach to buy lobsters and crabs from the local fishermen.

The well-maintained park facilities include a shower block with two wash basins and private ladies' and gents' washing areas. A washing-up area, chemical toilet and waste water disposal areas, and recycling facilities are also on site.

Supplies can be picked up at the shop close by selling essentials, gifts and fishing kit, at two large supermarkets in Campbelltown, and at the shop of Glenbarr three miles away, which also has a small garden centre, a café and free wifi.

And we haven't even mentioned the sunsets around here. Take a minute now and sigh happily over those site pics.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

    Totally loved the location right on the beach, the free use of the fire pit on the beach was a lovely surprise, clean toilets etc, the sunset, the veiws. I was sad to leave.
    It is remote, no shops or restaurants for a while (about 18 miles).

    Disliked: 

    Nothing, it's only small but if you get the weather then nothing else is needed.

This is a lovely site right on a beach. Beautiful scenery . 08/15/2017

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The view from the pitch and the sound of the waves on the beach. The pitches are a good size and have a nice wooden bench. The grass is well maintained and well drained. Clean well kept facilities.
    Site owners were helpful and laid back.

    Disliked: 

    Some road noise as the site is between the main road and the beach (can't be helped). Water in the showers could run hot and cold at times and only one shower in ladies and one in the gents.

  • Liked: 

    Warm, comfortable and clean, well maintained cottage in beautiful surroundings. The cottage had everything we needed with additional amenities available in Campbelltown. Our first time in the area and we will definitely be back. This visit was encountered an abundance of wildlife including seals, deer, even dolphins splashing around further out towards Ghia. Pack the binoculars!

    Disliked: 

    WiFi intermittent and we gave up trying to get online however this was quite nice as we had a chance to do other things as a family without our noses stuck in gadgets!

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Get ready to go a-sailing… and along to Campbelltown for regular boat trips to Ailsa Craig, Sanda Island and around the peninsula for wildlife and whale watching.

A fast boat also goes to Ballycastle from here via Islay: from there, take a ferry back over water to reach the fab and tiny RSPB reserve of Rathlin Island (here there be puffins).

Are you a golfer? And if so, have you ever hit a ball over the Atlantic? If your response was first Aye and then a wistful Nay, take the tees to Machrihanish Golf Club above the northern tip of the Mull of Kintyre to try it out. Several other golf courses are in the area once this has whetted your golfing whistle: try Carradale and Dunaverty to start things off.

This is also whisky land, with the two distilleries of Glen Scotia and Springbank in Campbelltown. Both have gift shops (huzzah) and run regular tours.

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
